Q. I have completed a MS in petroleum engineering and working under OPT in a laboratory. Can I apply as a chemist for H1B.
A: First you cannot self petition for the H1B. Your employer will need to file for you. A discussion will have to be had between your employer and your employer's immigration attorney to determine the appropriate job title under which your case needs to be filed. A review of Onet and the Occupational Outlook Handbook will have to be made to determine this appropriate occupational category. Job duties will be needed to determine this occupational category. A chemist may be the correct occupational category or may not be. It will depend on your duties. Some of the job duties of petroleum engineer may overlap with a chemist. In that circumstance you may not need to show anything more than your education and the project details as to what you will be working on with your employer. However, I have seen circumstances arise where an RFE is issued where the education and the proffered position do not necessarily look like a match and the officer reviewing the petition does not see how the education and proffered field are related. In these circumstances, an expert evaluation can be sought to show how your education fits the proffered position.
